Yeah, would agree with gobs, Wilko's seeds start from around 49 pence and Lidl's about 20 pence. If you are in an allotment association you can pick seeds up quite cheaply as well. :D

Alan Romans (http://www.alanromans.com) are also very cheap - about 50p/pack.

If you have a Wyevale Garden Centre near you, keep a look out too - I bought tonnes of seeds and flowers from them last year for about 50p/pack when they had a massive clear-out

I have used Alan Romans before and i must say they are very good, he keeps his prices down by using plain packaging. If i remember rightly the p & p was very good as well. :wink:

Go to ebay and search for vegetable seeds. You can get a mix of about 20 different veg and herbs for about 5 pounds or so... or other combinations that are pretty cheap. And they deliver to your postbox in a few days :-) The only downside is that you don't get to pick your varieties as carefully as you would if you were buying individually.

You can't beat Wilko's for seeds.

And they've had a 3 for 2 offer on All Year. :D
